Johanna is 13 and more than anything else in the world hates sports, teachers and brown hair. So she's very surprised to fall in love with the brown-haired son of a PE teacher. Christian is different to the other pupils by whom she's either teased at parties or ignored. With him, she can relax and forget about the problems with her violent father.Johanna and her sister Moni learned early on how to deal with the situation at home and present a brave face to the outside world. Christian should be spared the family secret, but at Johanna's birthday party the situation takes a dramatic turn. A moving film about falling in love for the first time, finding the courage to say "No" and the psychological effects of domestic violence.
